First, from Baker, aka rare seeds

http://www.rareseeds.com/green-vernissage-tomato/

Now a general search

https://www.google.com/search?q=gree...&bih=788&dpr=1

I see nothing that indicates variegated foliage,nor in the comments made in the first link where this variety was rated by many..

How many plants did you have out and I ask since in the past,some have said pigeon or other bird droppings,etc,

This is what the tray looks like. In this tray I have 7. I need to go look at the others, too. They are in a corner. Where I don't look too close. Or does this happen to be physiological at times. I have not sprayed with anything. Peter's petunia food is going through the injector. They are the only ones that look like this.
real live pigeon droppings? these are in the greenhouse yet. no birds in there.

I never saw anything anywhere about variegated foliage. That is why I was asking. Maybe they arent green vernissage?

"other" as in I am growing the seeds for a customer. He didn't want all that I germinated... the others are the same seeds, just in a different tray in the greenhouse. I am growing them in Baccto loose fill. and I am fertilizing them with Jacks ( which I said Peters earlier... it is Jacks not Peters brand) Petunia food through an injector. no other tomatoes except the green vernissage has this coloring. the black vernisagge looks like a regular green tomato.
